  • No matter your child’s age, make sure they receive the proper vaccinations at the right time. Watch for symptoms of asthma, allergies and other sicknesses. Also, limit screen time and sugary drinks.
  • Toddlers start speaking and potty training at different times. Tantrums and bed wetting are normal at this age – to an extent. Also, your child should ride in a booster seat until they reach 4’9”.
